WhatsApp Backs in Brazil


Brasilia: Whats App began working again in Brazil on Thursday after a Sao Paulo court lifted a 48-hour suspension on Facebook’s popular smartphone messaging app.

A judge in Brazil has ordered that a suspension of the popular messaging application WhatsApp be lifted. Judge Xavier de Souza said the service should be re-instated immediately.

A court had ordered the service be suspended for 48 hours on Thursday for failing to comply with a court order to provide investigators with information relating to a criminal court case.

Judge Souza said it was “not reasonable that millions of users be affected by the inertia of the company”.
